Milwaukee County's Neediest Animals May Just Find Homes
Luckily, that hasn't stopped local animal welfare
organizations from trying.
Central Bark in Menomonee Valley
and the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) are
teaming up to host MADACC's first off-site adoption event for their
long-term animals. Approximately, 10 dogs will be happily awaiting future
owners from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 31.
Melanie Sobel, executive director of MADACC, is
ecstatic to get the ball rolling. "If people want to help Milwaukee County's neediest animals, this is the
event to go to adopt a dog!" she says. "MADACC's goal is to provide
an outlet for the wonderful adoptable animals at MADACC that are not selected
by other animal welfare agency adoption programs but still deserve a second
chance at life."
Jessica McCann, owner of Central Bark and huge
supporter of MADACC, has graciously offered her facility as a venue to showcase
these animals on a regular basis (including cats), according to Sobel.
So individuals are encouraged to come and mingle with
dogs that are spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and
flea/worm treated prior to adoption. A $100 adoption fee will be required
along with a $12 licensing fee for Milwaukee
Central Bark is located at 333 N. 25th St.
